Markets and the Environment: Friends or Foes?

Wednesday, January 29, 2003,
5:30 - 7:00
Brass Rail, Benson Memorial Center, Basement
Santa Clara University

After three decades of command-and-control environmental regulations, pragmatic environmentalists are searching for more effective tools. With its focus on incentives, free market environmentalism shows how markets can be harnessed to improve resource stewardship and environmental quality. Terry Anderson will survey the history of command and control and contrast it with real-world examples illustrating the potential for free market environmentalism.



Terry Anderson is the executive director of PERC, a think-tank focusing on market solutions to environmental problems located in Bozeman, Montana. He is also senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and professor emeritus at Montana State University. His work has helped launch the idea of free market environmentalism and has prompted public debate over the balance between markets and government in managing natural resources. Anderson is the author or editor of 24 books, including Free Market Environmentalism (Pacific Research Institute 1991), coauthored with Donald Leal which received the 1992 Sir Antony Fisher International Memorial Award, and Enviro-Capitalists: Doing Good While Doing Well (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 1997), also coauthored with Donald Leal. His current projects include a forthcoming book with P. J. Hill on The Not So Wild, Wild West.

This event is organized in conjunction with the SCU Institute on Globalization
